Double Chocolate Donuts [gluten-free, nut-free, paleo]

IMG_3850

Let’s just say this is one of my best recipes yet. Period. I was scrolling through all of my blog posts trying to think of a new idea for a recipe, and I realized I don’t have a recipe for DONUTS a.k.a. one of the best treats EVER! I can’t think of the last time I had a donut (being gluten- and dairy-free) let alone a donut that didn’t leave my blood sugar spiked and feeling low energy, so I decided to create these Double Chocolate Donuts and oh my goodness … these donuts are heavenly!

They are made with super simple ingredients, and I use coconut flour for this recipe to keep it nut-free for my followers with nut allergies. Don’t get me wrong, I love love love my almond flour, but I love challenging myself to make recipes that will fit with everyone’s dietary needs!

The chocolate glaze on top makes these donuts seriously taste like such a treat. I used Loving Earth dark chocolate, but feel free to use your preferred chocolate. I also love this brand and this brand. But let’s be real, can you really go wrong with chocolate? The answer in my books is NO!
